After a Russian missile hit Kharkiv’s centre square on Tuesday, Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy described Russia’s assault as “undisguised horror.”

Earlier today, Russian shelling hit the central square of Ukraine’s second-largest city and other civilian targets, while a 40-mile convoy of tanks and other vehicles threatened the capital, as Ukraine’s embattled president accused Moscow of using terror tactics to push Europe’s largest ground war in generations. Russian military marched on Ukraine’s two largest cities as the Kremlin became increasingly isolated as a result of strong economic sanctions that have caused the ruble currency to plummet. Videos released online showed explosions hitting the region’s Soviet-era administrative buildings and residential areas in crucial Kharkiv, an eastern city with a population of approximately 1.5 million. During bombardment, a maternity ward was moved to a bunker. The strike on Kharkiv’s main plaza was dubbed “frank, undisguised terror” by Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy, who blamed a Russian missile and labelled it a war crime. “Nobody is going to forgive you. Nobody will ever forget it… This is Russian Federation state terrorism.”
